Quick Overview

The remove_interest command in Europa Universalis IV is used to no longer mark a certain country as being of special interest to you.

You use a country's specific country tag as a parameter for this command, which means, if you enter this command with the specific country tag, that country will be removed from your list of countries of special interest.

This mainly affects notifications and updates you receive about the activities of that country in the game.

In-Depth Description

In Europa Universalis IV, the remove_interest command is used to remove a specific country from your list of countries of special interest.

The command requires the country tag as the parameter.

When you play the game, there are certain countries you'll want to pay extra attention to because they're either threats or possible allies or because they have resources you need. These are your countries of interest. These are the countries you're notified about when anything significant happens.

Using remove_interest command can help you declutter your game by stopping notifications about countries you're no longer interested in.

For example, if England (ENG) is no longer a useful ally or a threat and you're tired of receiving updates about them, you can input the command remove_interest ENG to remove England from your countries of interest.

This command helps you to focus your attention on key gameplay elements, allowing for more efficient gameplay. It can be used at any time you find a country no longer relevant to your strategic objectives.

Keep an eye on how the global situation evolves, and adjust your list of countries of interest accordingly.
